14.7%, 116 g/l RS, TA 4.6. Extremely pure botrytis and very ripe grapes picked mid Oct. Very concentrated but well balanced. 26 Sep – 26 Oct, 24 days of picking. Very full and luscious and sweet with a hint of tropical fruit – something exotic. Very long and complete. Very very sweet at the beginning and a little dry and savoury at the end. A very good bottle. Jancis Robinson

From one of the 20th century's celebrated vintages for Yquem, this bottle stands up to all the hype--unforgettable for its purity, elegance, harmony, its 'total' everything. Powerful, yet it seems weightless on the palate, almost defying gravity as it tangos around with its vanilla, peach and apricot flavors. Seamless, nearly endless finish. Easy to understand its reputation as the greatest Yquem of the last 35 years.

Based solely on the strength of what is unquestionably a great Yquem, many have concluded that 1967 was a superb vintage for Sauternes. The truth is that 1967 was a very good but irregular vintage. As for Yquem, it is close to perfection. Medium amber/golden with a full intensity bouquet of vanillin spice, honey, ripe pineapples, and coconut, this intense, very ripe, unctuous Yquem has layers of sweet, opulent fruit, excellent balance, and a hefty, powerful finish. Almost too big and rich to be served with food, this wine should be drunk alone as a dessert. From the point of view of this wine's evolution, it has hardly budged in the last six years.
